Jackal: A Modest Proposal
« on: February 20, 2011, 03:53:13 PM »
Jackal,

I am not sure of your reason for your threads. They obviously generate much excitement.

You are obviously smart and well versed and articulate in a variety of technical areas.

I curious about your "intent" and whether you would like to have a productive discussion.

No esoteric or jargon (at first). Simple back and forth. Not for the sake of proving or disproving God or any "big" questions. But a simple straight-forward discussion.

Maybe information theory will come up, maybe "theology" will as well.

But at first some simple discussion. Others can join, but let's see if we, you and I, can maintain a simple and direct conversation.

You will have to patient with me though. I will probably ask more questions and usually one at a time. And I will probably ask you to repeat some of your answers, until I understand them. Also, you will have to forgive my increased tendency to be unclear at times due to an injury that often impedes my former ability to type well.

If however you think are making inroads in convincing folks here to abandon their beliefs or correcting their understanding of things like "materiality" or "nothing".

Carry on.

I just noticed that your screen name is "Jackel" not "Jackal".

Sorry.

I think your question has been answered by his silence.
